Regarding real estate anywhere, the question is, should I buy now or should I wait? Clearly the opinion of the New York Times is that buying Boulder Real Estate in Boulder, Colorado guarantees controlled growth, no houses stealing up the nearby foothills. No mega-towers and the town is surrounded by the magnanimous open space. Also that a substantial fraction of the city’s budget goes toward purchasing more open space guaranteeing that this will be here for our children and their children’s, children’s, children. Hiking, biking, running, walking, skating, climbing, skiing, fresh air are all at our beckoned call.
There is a premium put on the natural environment. Many folks in town are maverick second home/condominium dwellers. Pearl Street, a 4 block outdoor pedestrian mall is a hub for social interaction, What’s the draw to Boulder? Lower taxes than most large cities in the east, clean air, clear water, safe streets (with the exception of those who continue to text while driving), dining and late night cappuccinos (bargain priced to haute cuisine), brilliant public and private schools, blue sky, CU-Boulder, friendly neighbors, 300 sunny days a year, a farmers market to die for and views, views, views. I have to agree. I have been here since the early 80’s it just gets better and better and better.
On the high end penthouse condos can go for $2M + but the taxes are say around $13,000 and on the low end $399,000 with taxes around $2,100 per year. If you wish to pursue a property in Boulder give me a call today Michael. To read the entire story go to New York Times
